UPDATE:

Got the fitting out. Not too hard. The threads were mangled to death. It had clearly been cross-threaded. I don't know if I did it or whoever put the hose on before me. I tried cleaning up...

Yeah - I took that same approach with the other end of one of the hoses. I couldn't get it to connect to the radiator, but when I reverse-turned it until I heard a click, then I could get it to go. I...
